About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Blueberry Lemon Cookies

I've been in the baking mood the last couple of days wanting to try some new recipes.  These cookies were a big hit with Mike and me.  Bradley still isn't very fond of blueberries.  He tells us when he turns 5, he will like them.  This is a shortbread cookie with the freshness of lemon and yummy blueberries.  Perfect for a morning snack with a cup of coffee!

2 sticks salted butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups blueberries

Cream the butter and sugar together.  Add eggs, vanilla, and lemon juice and beat well.  Add the dry ingredients and finish mixing.  Stir in the blueberries.  Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
